' Narrow Escape.
Car Inspector John W. Dickinson
came near being killed last Sunday
afternoon while in discharge of his
duties for the Burlington. He was in
specting the cars on train 43, from the
-east, on its arrival, when the switch
engine drew up thr coaches on the
south line, just opposite Dickinson,
who feared that he might be too near
the passenger train from the east which
lie wa3 inspecting. Not realizing the
switch engine's movements, Dickinson
arose and turned face forward toward
the Denver coaches just in time to be
struck with great force and hurled to
the ground unconscious. By great
luck that would not occur once in a
hundred times, he fell in a position
that left him unharmed from the fast
moving coaches on 43, not more than a
foot from his body. Switchman Al
Woods came to rescue, and with help
of other trainmen, he was carried under
the viaduct near where the accident
happened. Dr- Slaglc was soon on
hand and cated for Mr. Dickinson,
who remained unconscious for a half
hour. His injuries consisted of a brok
en nose, three or four broken teeth and
a scar over his right eye. He was
carried to Dr. Bellwood's office and
his wounds dressed.
Mr. Dickinson lives in South Al
liance. He has been one of the com
pany's trustworthy employes, and it is
to be regretted thai he will be laid up
for several days.
Wyoming Cow Boy
Base Ball Club
A new organization, known as the
"Wyoming Base Ball Club" has been
organized in this city and on the 10th
of August will leave for the east on a
tour of ball playing, the first stop to
be made at Broken' Bow. Chas. Huss,
who recently sold his confectionery
stand, will be manager of the aggrega
tion. The club is composed of several
local players, two or three of the
"Bloomer aggregation" and others from
abroad and in a stiong team. It is
the intention, of the "cow boy" team to
play the balance of the season in east
ern Nebraska and Iowa. Good luck
to the boys!
Don't forget the Country Fair at
Phelan Park, Friday, July 31st.
Everyone turns out to see a circus
parade, and the crowds that gather to
watch the grand spectacular parade
given by Campbell Brothers Big Con
solidated Shows when they exhibit in
Alliance, Monday. August 3, will wit
ness one that is unexcelled anywhere
Horses are always a leading feature
with everv circus, and Campbell Bros,
have spent years in raising and train
ing their hundreds and hundreds of fine
horses that are exhibited both in the
free street parade, and in the various
ways under the big top.
The horses are. attractive, but we
must not fail to mention their riders;
scores and scores of really beautiful
women, gaily and magnificently cos
tumed and all exhibiting'different feats
of horsemanship and daring. Then,
there are the almost ungovernable hor
ses and bronchos that are mounted by
cowboys; and the troop of Russian
Cossacks, whose services Campbell
Brothers have secured direct from the
Steppes of Russia, at enormous ex
pense, and who are famous the world
over for performing the most wonder
ful and reckless feats on horseback
with their horses going at full speed.
Don't fail to see them; also many other
features too numerous to mention that
are always a part of every circus, as
groups of beautiful women posed as
various characters ou the huge glitter
ing wagons, bands of music and clowns,
to say nothing of the valuable menag
erie that is carried with these shows.
Campbell Bros, are from Fairbury,
Nebr., and the people of Alliance
should boost home products.
"Uncle Zeke" Laid to Rest.
The fUneral of Ezekiel Mabin was
held at Hemingford last Sunday after
noon, the services hoiug held in the
Congregational church, Rev. C. H.
Burleigh, the M. E. minister, preach
ing an eloquent sermon. The church
was crowded with friends of the de
ceased who came to pay their tribute
of respect to the old soldier who had
lived among them for the past twenty
years or more, during which time he
had endeared himself to his neighbors
for his kinduess of heart and good fel
lowship. 'The six pallbearers were
comrades of the civil war and the
ritualistic service of the Grand Army
of the Republic was hold at the ceme
tery. The funeral procession was one
of the largest that ever marched to the
Hemingford cemetery. Those who
attended the funeral from Alliance
were Mr. and Mrs. I. E. Tash, Mr.
and Mrs. John O'Kecfe, Sheriff Wiker,
Smith P. Tuttle, C. R. Clapp, J. B.
Denton, T. M. Lawler, F. H. Mollring,
C. W. Brenuau, Eugene Burton, Ray
Kutitz, T. J. O'Koefc and sister, Chas.
Brinkiuau atid C. A. Newberry.
Abreast the Times
The engagement of a well known singer.
R. Harriett Johnson by Mr. Lockwood is
surely a move in the right direction. Miss
Johnson is a singer both of classical and
popular music, but her singing of "The
Rose Song" and "Absent" last evening
impresses one that she is making a mistake
by handling popular songs, she should de
vote all her efforts to classical alone
The management stated, last evening
that Miss Johnson would some evening
during the week sing "The Holy City"and
"The Rosary," which will undoubtedly be
a treat for Alliance theatre goers.
Miss Johnson's stay with us is indefinite
and no one should miss an opportunity of
hearing her. Her tones are sweet, clear
and strong, made so by years of hard
study. She just recently closed an en
eagement with a song publishing house.
Prior to this, she was with Whitney in
"A Night or a Day," giving 400 perform
ances. Miss Johnson will soon begin re
hearsals for her new act, to be played over
the Orpheum circuit this fall and winter,
and from the description of some of it will
be an elaborate affair. As the curtain
goes up Miss Johnson will be seen posed
as "The Madonna" in a large picture
frame, studded with electric lights. In
the distance one can hear the strains of
a church organ playing "The Holy City,"
which is taken up and sung by Miss John
son. At the fiuish of the song, she step's
from the frame, the white robe falls from
her and she appears in a black velvet gown
outlined with 2-candle power electric
lights, with great large medalions worked
out with colored lights.
All told there are 300 electric lights
used on her dress which are operated by
concealed wires along the lloor of the
stage to the switch board.
In this elaborate gown she will sing
"Carirsima" and "Absent."
Later in the season Alliance theatre
goers may see this act put on for a try
our prior to her going on the road.

Mascot for Battleship.
The crew of the monitor Wyoming
has been limiting for a mascot from
the state after which the vessel was
named, and now that crying need is
about to be satisfied. An article re
cently published in this paper concern
ing some young wolves that were
caught by the Boots boys was widely
copied, and in some way came to the
notice of the crew. Here was just the
chance they were looking for. Mr.
Boots has received a letter from the
gunner's mate of the vessel inquiring
whether one of the animals could be
had for the purpose. With commend
able state pride, he answered that he
would be glad to donate the best one,
and that if the Wyoming is as good a
fighter as the young mascot promises
to be it will be all off with the Japs in
a naval battle.
Arrangements for the shipment of
the pet have not yet been completed,
but Dewey for thus the cub has been
appropriately named will be forward
ed at no distant day. A native Wyo
ming wolf is about the best selection
that could be made for a fighting mas
cot for a war vessel bearing the name
Wyoming, and if it comes to a battle
on the seas no one need fear but the
name of this state will come through
with honor. Thermopolis Record.
